The introduction lays out the historical and conceptual dimensions of fugitive science, a concept that emerges out of scholarship on fugitivity in African American studies as well as the theorization of empiricism and minor science in the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari. It also chronicles the embeddedness of US racial science in networks of travel, writing, and scientific exchange across the Atlantic world. Finally, it illuminates the centrality of science writing in the antebellum black print sphere, while gesturing toward those forms of vernacular science that largely eluded the print archive.
